Known for his video work, and most notably the structuralist film The Flicker, as well as playing in the legendary group, The Theatre of Eternal Music, Tony Conrad is a truly enigmatic figure in the history of American contemporary art. I am a huge fan and was lucky enough to stumble upon his Doing the City show by chance when in New York in 2012, which featured his unique video, music and installation art. Surprisingly, this recently released book is the first monograph devoted to the under appreciated luminary to compile his work over the last 50 years.
